I did have to wait 3 hours to get into my room and the room lacked natural light but I have to say that the cleanliness of then guesthouse was impeccable and the bed ...... what a dream. Crisp, clean sheets and thick comfortable mattress. Would definitely stay with these people again. Also the guesthouse is right next to a market. Very convenient location


Was slightly annoying that we had to wait 4 hours for our room, but other than that was a comfortable stay!


Clean and nice hostel. Location is quite good close to the night market. Great for thr price.


Good hostel, friendly staff, booked trip to Phi Phi there, central location, very clean


Great staff, excellent location, very nice room.


The owners of this hostel are adorable and very friendly! They took care of us with suggestions on tours, dining, and transportation. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There is not much to do in Krabi at all, but the hostel was only a block away from the night market.


The owner and his lovely Gafiyah are nice people. The guesthouse is very close to the Krabi night markets, which is excellent if you love eating local food (and also convenient if your stomach disagrees shortly afterwards). We were able to arrange Phi Phi island tours through the owner and they provided washing services and a ride to the airport for us (not for free though). They speak sufficient english as well.


Extremely comfortable and clean, the staff were the most friendly and accommodating. Very close to the night market and night time festivities. Definitely a great find in krabi town. Make sure to take off your shoes!

Nice hostel, nice staff! :)


The staff is incredibly nice and helpful in this hostel, we had a very nice stay there for 2 nights. We could rent scooters directly there and they booked our transportation to Phuket in 5 minutes. The complimentary breakfast was delicious too. Only bad point to this, only one bathroom for everyone in the hostel, you have to be patient to go take a shower sometimes... But all and all not a problem at all!


Stayed for 3 nights. Staff very friendly, make us feel very welcomed. Slightly cramped size double room The large wardrobe takes up too much space). Saw the deluxe room, which was very nice. Fan cools room ok. Musty smell. Left door open for a little while with fan on to circulate air. Good wifi. 3 electrical outlets. Desk, giant wardrobe & side table. Shared bathroom with only 1 other room. Clean bathroom. No shoes allowed inside & very clean floors. Felt comfortable. Not much of a common area,

Very nice rooms for a great price :)


Stayed at Gafiyah for a couple of nights in between Krabi airport and Ko Lanta. Clean hostel, nice big rooms, friendly staff (really nice actually) and very central location. I'd definitely stay there again if passing through Krabi.
